In 2002, Jay-Z and R. Kelly released a collaboration album called "Best of Both Worlds." While the record featured arguably the biggest two names in hip hop and R&B, it fell short of expectations, was panned by critics, didn't perform so well on the charts and spawned no hits. You get that same feeling when you see a lot of hybrid/fusion sneakers. Pairing together two great entities doesn't always turn out for the best. However, the Air Force 1 Foamposite seemed to avoid lukewarm reception when it sold well during the August launch.
A second colorways is on the way, and the moment of truth is near. Was the Air Force 1 Foamposite a 1-hit wonder, or does the shoe have some staying power? This "blacked out" Air Force 1 Foamposite features a look that is about as simple as it gets. A black foam shell gets help from tonal nubuck along the eyestay and heel tab, while canvas of the same color is used for the ankle cross-strap. Offering support below is a translucent outsole, providing a clear look at the liner and underfoot. The rumored release date is appropriately Black Friday, but no confirmation has been made. Stick with Sole Collector for the latest.
